Whether they are in tourism destination or not, municipalities effort to meet the various social service requirements of people. Recreation has a special place in social services. This research aimed to compare the recreation services of county municipalities of Muğla considering the criterion of being in tourism destination.For the aim mentioned, a survey questionnaire was developed based on the previous researches to collect data about the recreation services of municipalities. A 16 item survey questionnaire was applied to the people who are in administrator position in 10 municipalities. Before all the researchers tried to reach the major or the person on the level of second top administrator. Frequency and percentages were used to analyse the data collect from the data gathering material. The results of the research exposed that the recreation services of the municipalities in tourism destinations are more various than those are not in tourism destinations. While municipalities in tourism destinations supply these services all year long (not seasonal), the others give seasonal services (in summer or traditional days). Most of them have no recreation department and/or recreation programmer. Instead, public relations or any related person get the responsibility of carrying on these services.
